For golfers looking to maximize performance with a high set for easy hitting irons, Cobra is here to help with the all new 3rd Generation T-Rail Hybrid and Combo Set with HOT face technology.
The latest version builds on the previous T-Rail design which uses hollow body construction throughout the set and combines it with Cobra’s signature Baffler rails on the club sole to improve turf interaction while lowering the center of gravity.
With their wide soles and hybrid designs, the T-Rail irons are aimed at golfers looking to improve their game, as well as players on the lower end of the swing speed spectrum who need extra launch to increase carry and distance. By bringing the same technology used in the upper part of the hybrid set to the irons, you get a set that is easy to hit from top to bottom that also helps create more consistent club spacing.
What is HOT Face?
The HOT Face technology in the T-Rail irons is derived from the same AI design that Cobra and Fairway woods drivers have used in the past to optimize face thickness, but honed for a smaller face profile. Based on the face area of irons and hybrids compared to the driver and target golfer, this helps increase the sweet zone by 30% to the Cobra, and results in more consistent ball speeds on misses — because nobody hits it better all the time.
Now, if you’re worried about how a hollow, hybrid iron might sound, don’t worry, Cobra designers have placed internal rib structures inside the set to improve sound and feel, without sacrificing the center of gravity.
Another interesting feature of the T-Rail irons is found on the sole, where Cobra engineers hollowed out and spaced the Baffler rails behind the face to increase flex on shots towards the leading edge. This helps retain ball speed and helps increase launch on low shots.
To make T-Rail iron configuration easier for those golfers who may not have a full understanding of how to build a set, Cobra has done the work for you. The 4-Hybrid replaces the 4-Iron/Hybrid in the standard men’s set, and the 5-Hybrid replaces the 5-Iron/Hybrid in the women’s set.
